Nice little park in the downtown with a great view. Not a lot to do, but the beautiful view makes up for it. Check out the beautiful gardens across the street too.

We went here to have our engagement photos done and there are some very beautiful views from this location, you can have a picnic here or just scour the ocean floor when tide is out.
